Negotiating the Minefield
Sometimes being the parent or caregiver to a teenager can feel like negotiating a minefield. This is particularly true when your teen is stressed or distressed.
Connecting with your Child/Teen
Having a great relationship with your children and/or teenagers makes parenting much easier.
If your family is being supported by more than one community organisation or government service, Strengthening Families may be for you.
Family Works Central is an accredited provider of counselling and workplace support services through various Employee Assistance programmes (EAP).
